the pain and wondering, where is america's outrage? where's america's concern that we're still at war? my question is, mr. speaker, why is the house of representatives still supporting a war that costs $10 billion a month? this money is borrowed primarily from the chinese. all we hear about is this financial cliff, this crisis that's facing america. my question is after 11 years, where's the outrage from congress for our men and women in uniform dying in afghanistan? 2014 is the date that the president has said we will start bringing the troops out. that is 25 more months. why do we have to wait until the end of 2014 to start bringing our troops home? how many more have to die at the hands of the very afghans they're training? october 14 "new york times" editorial titled "time to pack up," has a subtitle that says it best -- "it should not take two more years for the united states to leave afghanistan." mr. speaker, i have a petition on my website, the website is jones.house..gov. i'm asking people around this country to please sign this petition with the name and state, nothing else, who
in this country. this should not be news to anyone on capitol hill. it is certainly not news to anyone in america who was not in a coma during the campaign season. lou: senate majority leader kerry read with a much different take on his meeting with the treasury secretary. an almost gleeful harry reid told republicans to put specific revenues on the table, even as republicans continue to wait for the democtic party and specific spending cuts on the table. >> i had a nice meeting with secretary geithner this morning. i always enjoy meeting with him. democrats are all on the same page. republicans know where we stand. we have sete and said it so many times, and the president has said the same thing. it has been weeks, at least two weeks since we met at the white house. and we are still waiting for a serious offer from the republans. now is the time for the republicans to move past this happy talk about revenues and put specifics on the table. lou: there is very little talk and none of it has been particularly happy on either side. the president and speaker boehner talked by phone last night. in a c
you very much and i look forward to questions. >> thank you. for those who believe that america is founded is the greatest country in the history of the world, we wanted someone who would fight for us. we wanted a fighter like ronald reagan who boldly championed america opposing founding principles who inspired millions of independence and reagan democrats to join us and who fought his leftist opponents on the -- idea that america was a shining city upon a hill. what we got was a week moderate candidate handpicked by the beltway elite and country club establishment wing of the republican party. the presidential loss is unequivocally on them. with a catastrophic loss, the tea party is the last best hope america has to restore her founding principles. while it may take longer to restore with president, back in office we're not going away. it took nearly 100 years to take america to the place where we are today. it will take more than 3 1/2 years to restore our constitution. we're going to keep fighting. we respect the constitution and we now that for america to succeed, we need to
with america's march of freedom. one does not. i want our president to be on the right side of history. one sees climate change as an urgent problem. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics. well said by a savvy mayor of new york. he is so smart. >> the guy is very savvy. >> he waited until now. >> correct. i had somebody use the following phrase with me, he may be the ultimate lagging indicator in that mayor bloomberg is a cautious guy politically. he's always looking out for mayor bloomberg, and there's nothing wrong with that. politicians always look out for their own best interests first. that's the nature of being an ambitious pol, but would he have done this if he thought obama was going to lose? >> that's an indicator of the public. >> that's my question. i don't know. >> by the way, the late brilliant jack jarvis -- somebody once say when that ball comes down on new year's eve, or just at midnight when it starts to come down, that's how he would come down on an issue. you know the decision had been made. here i giv
that will help the american people to progress. i want to see america -- >> host: you want compromise? >> caller: i want compromise, yes. but i'm going to tell you this, and make no mistake about it, we have people in this country that have completely destroyed rather than try to compromise and try to bring the government to some sort of conclusion where everybody will benefit. some people in this country feel as though other people should not exist or have any benefit and they would do everything possible, spend all their money, disrupt the government and do whatever they can to prevent other people from having a happy life. >> host: let me ask you this. do you think that president obama should govern as if he has a mandate? how far should he pushed, should he be aggressive? >> caller: he has to be aggressive because if he doesn't -- >> host: is that compromise though? >> caller: you can be aggressive and still compromise. let me say this, the congress is the tea party for and if obama or romney or the other was president we would still have trouble because the tea party has an agenda and we ha

. i just wonder, with america and the world, business leaders here, business leaders around the world, the markets, everybody else looking so closely at this, was it necessary for the president to be so provocative with something that, you know, even "the new york times" said was, quote, loaded with democratic priorities, and really gave republicans nothing. >> again, it's a curious offer. i would imagine there has -- tim geithner's too smart of a guy, and this administration is filled with smart people. they must have a serious strategic plan. but if you were a pedestrian watching this, if the ceo of a company that's not been into the white house, a medium-size to small company, it has to be a source for alarm this morning that maybe they're not nearly as close to a deal as we thought. let alone if you're a ceo if you've been in the office with the president and you've laid out some of your priorities and concerns. >> so but it is step one, though, in a negotiation. >> it is step one. >> okay. so it's like bidding on a house. you always go farther from where you're going to be. >> bu

for america's interests in very difficult times. when the united nations is a place where we often face significant challenges. and i understand that there was a lot of concern and anger initially about benghazi and about what happened and about the differences and reports but as this has been peeled back and more and more of the details have come out as best as i can make sense of it, the persistent criticism of her is that she represented the administration, went on talking -- went on different talk shows and went different radio shows and presented it based on intelligence she was given. this is far from the first time that a secretary of state u.n. ambassador has been given bad intelligence and repeated it publicly and why that makes her somehow unfit to serve as secretary of state is beyond me. in my view, if there's some unhappiness about the incidence in benghazi, some deep concern about security, there ought to be a broad look into what happened. why four americans died. surprise. that's happening. there is a thoro

latin america, not all certainly, and they believed their interests laid with the democratic candidate, the president. >> i know stuart well, i have covered him in many campaigns. when he's not in a campaign, he's a very broad gauge guy. >> i got it. >> in the cockpit, he's different it seems based on these comments in particular. >> how about after a crash? >> because reaching out -- because reaching out means or should mean talking to them about -- the voters about issues they care about in the ways that they find appealing. what mitt romney's problems was, say, with the hispanic community was, especially in the primaries, mitt romney came on as the hard core guy who wanted people to self-deport or get gone. the way that sounded to -- evidently it sounded to 71% of hispanic voters who supported barack obama was we don't want to hear the republican candidate whose main platform is about getting us to take ourselves and leave the country. that's the reaching out that was wrong, not the mechanics, not the ground game, not that they didn't advertise on hispanic radio, which they didn't d

a vision for where america needs to be in this new century where we've got rising competition in china and germany and india and if we're going to have an american century we cannot come in second place to those countries in technology of the future. and i think that played an important role. there was a sense that the obama vision was one that they thought better suited this moment in our country's history. and there is no question on social issues whether it's women's healthcare or immigration. there was asset of issues that for younger voters was important to think about the kind of country and kind of president they wanted representing them. so on all those questions people wrestled carefully. i think that's why ultimately enough people in enough battleground states chose the president to continue this journey we're on. quickly in terms of demoggrafi. we don't know this for sure but we could be seeing different elections in on years and off years. the election in 2014 is going to be different than presidential lecktorts. and the comments i made were predicated on what we thought wo
